I slip into my dreams
They easily overtake
Taking me anywhere but here
Walking through the woods at midnight
Dipping a toe in a periwinkle pool
Skimming stones down some forgotten shore
All is silent except the sound of my breathing
I stare at my reflection
How did I get here?
Why the need to withdraw?
Who I am?
Dreams can become real
Questions will need answers
I slip back into reality
For I’ll never be able to escape myself
